The beauty of shopping for Halloween costumes at Buffalo Exchange is that we have everything you need to create your costume – from the everyday clothing items that form the basis of a look to the costume accessories that really bring it to life. Plus, our Costume Stylists can help you put together your entire last-minute Halloween look. Read on for some easy ideas!
What a classic! Pair a pencil skirt with a button-down blouse, cardigan and oversized readers to get the look. If you’re missing one or more of these, check your local Buffalo to see what they’ve got. Added bonus for props like an old book or pencils in your chest pocket.
For Didi Pickles, aka the Rugrats mom, find a basic red dress. You’ll just need to add green glasses, a yellow necklace and a wig. This makes for a good couples costume as well! You can create Stu Pickles with a green button-up, a blazer and a polka dot tie, which can easily be DIY’d or found at your local Buffalo.
80s Aerobics Instructor
Here’s another last-minute Halloween costume that never fails! Get your 80s workout instructor on with a pair of leggings, a one-piece swimsuit and sneakers. For a little extra oomph, add a scrunchie or sweatbands and don’t forget that side ponytail! This one’s also comfortable enough to wear all day and night.
The Bob’s Burgers cast is one of the easiest to replicate with street clothes – and makes for a great group costume as well!
For Linda: Find a long-sleeved red or orange tee, a white waist apron (could be DIY’d out of a white skirt) and red glasses. Throw on a pair of Converse or Vans, part your hair down the center and voila!
For Bob: You’ll need gray slacks, a white tee and dark-colored shoes. With a mustache and a fake burger (optional, but a pretty good prop), the costume is complete!
For Louise: This one’s super simple – all you need is a green dress and a pink hat. You can even DIY the ears on the hat with pink felt.
For Tina: You can find a blue tee and a denim skirt by shopping the racks at Buffalo. Just add a pair of black-framed glasses, tube socks and a yellow barrette.
For Gene: Yellow tee, denim shorts, red Converse. ‘Nuff said.
